What Kind of Blender Does Starbucks Use?

Vitamix 36019Very often, we are asked by customers, “What kind of blender does Starbucks use? That’s the blender we want!”

For years, Starbucks used a Blendtec blender, but the coffee giant eventually switched over to Vitamix, which created a blender specifically for Starbucks’ needs. Today, you’ll see the 48-ounce Vitamix Blending Station Advance, better known as “The Quiet One,” in nearly every Starbucks you go to around the world.

The Quiet One’s smart product design means that because of its advanced vibration dampening technology, this blender it is up to 18 decibels quieter than the competition. This is 4 times quieter than the competition and creates a much more enjoyable atmosphere for customers, whether waiting in line or enjoying coffee and company at a table. The magnetically designed floating sound enclosure is dramatically easier to clean and disassemble since there are no screws involved.

6 programmable buttons

  1. Its a funny story but basically Vitamix ripped off the patented design of Blendtec Wildside Jar, and in a sorry state a leader as Starbucks rewarded piracy just because it worked for them. Brands as SB, today need to measure up even to set standards and reward innovation. Its such a sorry state this happened in America, and by brand America on American Innovation. tch tch

    1. An extremely ignorant comment, Vick. This container is not the one that was part of the bogus lawsuit filed by Blendtec.

  2. ” Vitamix . . .created a blender specifically for Starbucks’ needs. ”

    That’s nonsense. Blendtec designed and patented the revolutionary 5-sided “Wildside Jar” – which Vitamix copied, and used to steal the Starbucks account. Blendtec sued Vitamix in a high-profile patent-infringement case – winning a $24 Million settlement from Vitamix..

  3. I fell in love with Blendtec!
    Promoted it to no end…until…
    shortly after, my jug started spewing out oil from where the blades connect.
    Blendtec adviced to manually turn the blades for one minute before using to prime the blades and convinced me to buy another $100
    jug.
    New jug not only released oil, but plastic pieces and the motor now sparks. Imagine oil and plastic in your smoothie?
    My 50 year old stainless steel
    VITAMIX inherited from grandma still works.
    VITAMIX IS A KEEPER!
